Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

We have news of a very interesting chess exhibition being held in Grandate, Italy (near Como, very close to the border with Switzerland). The exhibition is open till August 4 and includes chess exhibits including chess pieces, chess boards, chess photos, chess stamps, etc. You can check the official website:

This is a unique exhibit 'The Chess Game' by Italian artist Enrico Baj, 1988. Limited edition of 15 sets exist all over the world; Every sculpture on the chessboard is different, and therefore no pawn, knight or bishop is the same as another. The pieces are identified by the presence or absence of colored elements. The chessboard measures cm 272x272. Pieces average height cm 75.
